Lancashire Heeler Breed Maintenance
The grooming requirements for this breed are low. Bathing is typically only required a few times a year, although your Lancashire Heeler does require brushing on a regular basis, a grooming mitt or slicker brush will generally suffice. This is important not only to remove burrs, dirt, and excess hair from the coat but also to check for fleas or ticks. When you do bathe your dog, it is important to ensure that their undercoat is fully dry as it can hold moisture close to the skin, causing bacterial and fungal infections to flourish. These dogs are both energetic and intelligent, so they do require half an hour to an hour of daily exercise and mental stimulation to remain at their happiest and healthiest. Walks and runs are an excellent way to get the exercise and stimulation that your dog needs, but puzzle toys and training sessions may also play a part in providing these requirements.
